  2. Thesis. Your thesis should clearly identify changes (perhaps in a single sentence) and continuities (in another sentence). Make sure you note the time period (years) and setting somewhere in the first paragraph.

  3. Body Paragraphs. Start with your topic sentence arguing a specific continuity or change. Next, explain what LED TO OR CAUSED the change or continuity. Then present EVIDENCE (facts, vocab words) to support your topic sentence.

  4. Finally, do not forget to conclude. Restate and rephrase your thesis to ensure that you have the best possible chance of earning that point.

Guide

  1. READ THE PROMPT CAREFULLY!

  2. Thesis. Your thesis should clearly identify similarities versus differences, preferably in two separate sentences or two separate clauses within a sentence divided by a clear “however” or “but” etc. You should try for three similarities and three differences, preferably related. The differences ideally qualify the similarities.

  3. Body Paragraphs. Each body paragraph should start by arguing a similarity qualified by a difference. Follow with an explanation of what LED TO/CAUSED the similarity or the difference. Finish with three or more supporting details (facts, vocab words) and explain how they support the topic.

  4. Do not forget to conclude your essay. This is a good place to try to restate your thesis to ensure that you get the point in at least one of the two possible places.

SoHI AP Gov: Join Mr. E for a review session on Sunday, May 5th at 2pm in the auditorium. APUSH review will be happening concurrently but you will have your own activities as well.
